The occasional bright candle, maybe. Right now, most of the suits are still trying to figure out why the non-suits think the suits "Just Dont Get It" (the PHB syndrome). Unfortunately, the Adams brothers (Scott and Douglas) seem to have quite a bit of relevance (or more importantly - a large percentage of the people working in *your* trenches *think* they have relevance). And both authors share the trait that they tend to be much more an entertaining read than anything labeled a 'tome' ;) /Valdis P.S. Yes, I know about the incorrect genealogical term 2 paragraphs back. ;)
